Cross Country at Newby Hall

What a fabulous morning, the whole school took part in this annual cross country event alongside lots of other local village schools. It was really good fun and every body took part with a great attitude.  Not only did every one take part by running ( or in the case of Mrs. Hornby - walking a lot and running a little bit ) but it was great to see how the children cheered each other on , supported children from other schools by offering words of encouragement and showing true resilience. The course was one mile long, weather conditions were perfect and we were all proud of the way in which the children participated. When the children weren't running in their year group race, they were playing ball games or parachute games on the field and then enjoyed their packed lunches in the sunshine.
